If Chris Hardwick ever wondered how his colleagues feel about him, it’s crystal clear now!
Approximately 25 staffers including a female executive producer have quit in protest over his return as host of “Talking Dead.”
Via Page Six:
The “Talking Dead” fallout comes days after Hardwick’s first TV appearance — on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” — since actress Chloe Dykstra penned an essay in June accusing him of sexual and emotional abuse.
Hardwick is reportedly working to regain the support of the remaining “Talking” staffers.
In a “very emotional” staff meeting called by Hardwick on Wednesday, according to sources cited by The Wrap, the comedian apologized for the ordeal. He also offered one-on-one meetings for any crew members with concerns.
AMC reinstated Chris after a “careful review” of the allegations against him.
Apparently, everyone ain’t convinced.
